Intel Announces Mobile WiMax Chip

Intel has unveiled Rosedale II, the company’s first chip that supports mobile Wimax. The firm, according to Chris Beardsmore, Intel’s market development manager for Europe, will conduct commercial trials of the new silicon in Europe by the end of 2006. Beardsmore expects Rosedale II to expand the user base of Intel’s WiMax solutions. Beardsmore said: “What we’re seeing with Rosedale II is, not only have the vendors who bought Rosedale I (a fixed WiMax chip) said they’ll buy it, but we’ve also seen people like Alcatel enter the market.” He revealed that 10 companies have already ordered the new chip, whose production is set to start “later this year.”
